Prayer Stool

A poem for Lent, drawing close to God in worship and being sent by God in mission

Prayer Stool

I leave aside my shoes, my ambitions;

undo my watch, my timetable;

take off my glasses, my views;

unclip my pen, my work;

put down my keys, my security;

to be alone with you, the only true God.

After being with you,

I take up my shoes to walk in your ways;

strap on my watch to live in your time;

put on my glasses to look at your world;

clip on my pen to write up your thoughts;

pick up my keys to open your doors.

Graham Kings (1986 Kenya)
